Workshops cover how to capture property information with a GPS device to better navigate around property, recording landscape information and upload GPS data into property mapping software.
Training is nationally accredited and can help you towards a Certificate III in Agriculture. The key learning outcomes are:
- Understanding how satellite navigation works and determining the hand-held unit that will suit your property management requirements.
- Making sure your hand-held unit is set to the correct coordinate system.
- Learn how to set up and use a GPS hand-held unit, capturing waypoints and tracks and how to navigate with this information and get the most out of elevation data.
- Linking our property computer mapping program to your GPS unit, along with downloading and uploading property data from your map.
If you or a group of producers are interested in a GPS workshop please contact us for more details.
Ben and Julie Pini of Lancewood Station near Moranbah attended a workshop and learned how to find and capture the location of underground pipelines.
"Poly-pipe is a big thing for property owners to manage," he said.
"To be able to record where the polypipe is and its size is so handy; if one poly breaks, the amount of time you'd save when fixing it is huge."
